Just like heaven by Julia Quinn

My rating:


Just like heaven – Julia Quinn, Smythe-Smith Quartet #1

Just like heaven is the first book in the serie about the Smythe-Smith Quartet, written by Julia Quinn.

All the unmarried ladies in the family of Smythe-Smith plays in the family’s music quartet and perform during the family’s annual concert. It dosen’t matter if you are a skilled musician or not, you still need to be a part of the quartet. The only way to be released from the duty is to get married.

This first book, Just like heaven, is about Honoria. She is the youngest sibling in her family. Her sister are much older than her and all married. Her only brother, Daniel, had to leave England and is living abroad. Before Daniel fled the country, he asked his best friend, Marcus – The Earl of Chatteris, to keep an eye on his sister and make sure she marries a good man.
Circumstances makes it so that Honoria and Marcus get’s to spend a lot of time together and we get to follow how their relationship changes.

I find this book a bit boring… The love story between Honoria and Marcus is good but in my opinion, this book is a bit too slow and a large part of the book is about treating an illness, which I don’t find that entertaining.
But please don’t give up. The rest of the books in the Smythe-Smith Quartet serie are worth waiting for!
